Next, designers should take into account how the product will interact with other products and services that the user may be using. Finally, designers should create user-friendly designs that are reminiscent of the target users’ favorite products.When it comes to user-centered product design, Jesko believes that it is important to understand the users’ needs and want. She believes that user needs should be considered before any design decisions are made, and that it is ultimately the users’ responsibility to take control of their experience. She believes that user feedback is the best way to find and fix problems in a product, and that it is important to get users’ feedback early on in the product’s development process.
